Unlucky Them

One of my awesome friends is the president of the young women's organization in her church group. Tonight, she generously offered the babysitting services of the girls to local parents from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., so that the adults could go Christmas shopping without little eyes seeing the boodle.

At 7:00 p.m., the power went out in all of the city of Hurricane. For an hour. Does anyone else feel bad for her and laugh hysterically at the plight at the same time?

A large room full of teenage girls and small children.

Sudden darkness. No candles. No flashlights. No NOTHING!

I can just hear the screaming.

But if I had been there, I wouldn't have seen it.

Candy, I salute you!

Candy was amazing. One of the young men leaders went and got a generator. "They watched a movie n the dark and got to play with flashlights. It turned out pretty fun.

I guess it says something about me that my first consideration was for the shopping parents without a single thought for the plight of the children.
